The City of St. George Wastewater Collection system was first started around 1932. The division currently inspects, cleans, and maintains over 415 miles of sewer main lines, ranging from 6 inches to 48 inches in diameter. The division also maintains 10 lift stations and over 10,000 sewer manholes.
Several crews in the division work to keep the system operating efficiently. Two cleaning crews are able to clean the entire collection system in 14 months. The Wastewater Collections Division uses an inspection crew and camera equipment to inspect the entire system on an annual basis. A construction crew makes repairs to the existing system or installs new sections to improve the aging system.
